Sand Cay resort was an almost perfect getaway. We stayed a week with our two teenage girls in unit 312. The condo had nearly everything we needed, including beach umbrellas (with anchor which was very handy), cooler, cart to take everything to the beach, beach towels, drying rack for wet swimsuits. Nicely furnished and comfy. There were plenty of dishes and cooking supplies. We made use daily of the patio table for breakfast. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Free washer and dryer were handy. The girls enjoyed the free paddleboards, beach toys, movies, and popcorn. The area is beautiful. We enjoyed visiting some of the other beaches close by. Siesta Key is fantastic, but for quiet relaxation, Longboat was the best.
Very few complaints:
1. Nowhere on the island to buy groceries, as Publix was closed for remodeling (not the resorts fault of course). The one in Sarasota is quite nice.
2. It made no sense that the office staff could not check the condo before our arrival to check what items were supplied already. We purchased some things on our way from the airport unnecessarily that we ended up leaving there.
3. Of things that are supplied, I think they should take the length of booking into account. We stayed 7 nights and had to buy dishwasher soap, had to wash the 2 dish towels twice. It would be nice if some very basic items such as coffee filters, salt/pepper, etc. were there.
Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Sand Cay very much, and would recommend it to anyone.
312 is very nice. In my opinion, it is not worth paying $300 extra for beachfront, as all condos her...
